Ask him if he has experience with phase converters with a wide belt sander. I do remember now someone mentioning here that some wide belts have issues playing well with a phase converter. Even if the motor will run, the electronics might be the issue.

Honestly, unless you plan on getting three phase later on, you might want to check what it would cost to change the circuit board and anything else to single phase also. At least that way you know that wherever you move you can use it and if you resell it, that might actually give you a leg up on the resale market. Most people do not get wide belt sanders for shops because they are almost always 3 phase only.
